The Dialogues on the Experience of War program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service.  Dialogues is designed to reach military veterans; however, projects involving discussion groups that integrate veterans with civilians, men and women in active service, and military families are welcome. Project teams should include humanities scholars, military veterans, and individuals with relevant experience. 

A webinar will be held on September 8, 2020 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2928867388160137999
